Marlow Regatta Race Report
Last weekend the senior performance men took a 4+ to Marlow Regatta, held at Dorney Lake. Time trials kicked off with the four racing down the 1.9K course at 9:33am. With the attitude of ‘let’s do the best we can’ the boys stormed down the course gaining on Southampton in front and holding off Edinburgh A and B behind. Coming off the water happy with the race and then finding out they were 1.5 seconds off the A final with crews like Bristol, York and Surrey, fuelled their drive for the B final. Nerves on the start line were heightened as they stake boated in very tough windy conditions. As soon as ‘Attention Go’ was called there was no messing about, getting a canvas up before 250m. The race ran smoothly, keeping a constant lead ahead of the other 5 crews. The boys came off the water beaming, an amazing end to an awesome season.
Thank you to York University Boat Club for taking our boat to Dorney and to all the senior women who headed down after Henley to cheer us on!
